Great series finally continues after 4 years

Honestly, do you remember a series you saw four years ago? Rather not. However, Amazon does not stop it from surprisingly announcing the sequel to a great but already forgotten fantasy series.

In the May 2019 we didn’t have a glimmer of Corona and other things that were to come. Instead, Amazon Prime Video subscribers enjoyed a really well-made and entertaining fantasy series.

“Good Omens” on Amazon: Season 2 is coming in July

The venerable BBC produced in cooperation with Amazon Studios “Good Omens”. The series is based on the book A Good Omen by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman (watch it on Amazon Prime Video). The star-studded series is well received by viewers and critics alike. An IMDb rating of 8.0 is impressive.

Even better the impression that “Good Omens” leaves on Rotten Tomatoes – 84 percent of professionals give the thumbs up. With the viewers it is even 90 percent.

There has to be a second season, right? The problem: There is no longer a template, because the first season covers the entire book. What now? The problem has now been solved after four whole years and this is how it works second season on July 28th somewhat surprisingly at Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and regions worldwide (source: Amazon Studios).

The trailer as a reminder:

After such a long time, nobody wanted or could really believe in it anymore. Nice that it still worked. Something similar happened recently with the final season of “Carnival Row” on Amazon.

Author Neil Gaiman is also on board. He will continue to serve as executive producer and co-showrunner alongside executive producer Douglas Mackinnon. Six new episodes with a whole new story there will be.

The focus is again unorthodox friendship between the fastidious angel Erziraphael (played by Michael Sheen) and the rake and demon Crowley (played by David Tennant).

The intro alone is worth seeing:

What was it about again?

Nice to know, but back to the problem mentioned at the beginning. Who actually remembers what the series was about? Without further ado, we strive for the clear Synopsis from Amazonto give us a helping hand:

“An angel and a demon who’ve grown a little too accustomed to life on earth must form an unlikely bond in order to prevent the end of the world. However, they have lost the Antichrist, an eleven-year-old boy who has no idea that he is to usher in the end times. The two of them must find him and save the world before it’s too late.”

Sounds like a lot of fun in the truest sense of the word. By the way: A sequel naturally implies that the end of the world didn’t really get going in the first season. Sorry for the little “spoiler”.
